1-nichi 2-kai manga about childhood friends reunited in their 40s also had 1-shot in April
The official website for Shueisha‘s Cocohana magazine revealed on August 28 that Ryo Ikuemi‘s new manga is titled 1-nichi 2-kai (Two Times a Day), and will debut in the magazine’s November issue on September 28. The manga will have a color opening page and will feature on the issue’s front cover.
The manga is a serialized version of a one-shot manga that Ikuemi previously published in Cocohana on April 27. The story centers on a man named Remi and a woman named Toki, childhood friends who are now in their forties. Remi is a widower, and now lives with his mother and daughter. Toki returns to her parents’ home after a divorce. After their reunion, Toki opens up to Remi about her divorce.
Ikuemi’s Pops manga inspired an original video anime in 1993, her Kiyoku Yawaku manga inspired a live-action film adaptation in 2013, and her Anata no Koto wa Sorehodo manga inspired a live-action television series in 2017. Ikuemi’s Principal manga then inspired a live-action film that opened in Japan in March 2018. JManga digitally distributed Ikuemi’s Cousin manga in English before closing its doors.
Ikuemi ended her Taiyō ga Miteiru (Kamoshirenai Kara) manga in May 2018. She launched the series in Cookie in March 2014. Shueisha published the manga’s eighth and final volume in July 2018.
Ikuemi launched the Eine Kleine Nachtmusik manga, based on the novel by Kōtarō Isaka, on Gentosha‘s Comic Boost manga website on January 15.
